Choosing a masters degree is probably one of the hardest decisions we get to make in our academic life, and it's one that is going to get us closer to the career of our dreams. I know, it's difficult. I was in your exact position a few months ago, trying to decide which university is going to be my next “home” and source of inspiration. But I found the one which spoke to my heart from the first moment. It was Plymouth! It didn’t take long since I realized that the dream was becoming reality and I was moving to Plymouth to start my new life.
I am here today to share with you everything that attracted me to the University of Plymouth from the beginning, and I can confirm I never regretted my choice.
1. It offered exactly what I wanted to study
I knew I wanted to be a Digital Marketeer, but I was looking for a course really specific and not general Marketing Masters. Digital is my superpower, so I knew I wanted a course that would enhance these specific skills. And I did find exactly what I wanted. Here at the University of Plymouth, it is called MSc Digital & Social Media Marketing, and as you can guess it won my heart. *It was the one*
2. Interesting & Well-Organized Course
What I really liked with about Plymouth was that the course had the most interesting and exciting modules that I had seen regarding my Industry. And believe me, I had done my research. I fell in love with how the course was structured that I couldn’t wait for the semester to start! (Have you ever heard it from a student? Hahahaha). I find it very important to choose a course that suits you and a course that you like because you are going to spend a whole year studying it, so it must be fun and enjoyable. At least this is how it was for me, and ended up the best experience of my life
3. A place that reminded me of home
When you study abroad, it is important that the place you chose to live in reminds you of home. Plymouth seemed like paradise, filled with blue sea and lovely views, that would make me every day feel closer to Greece, my home country. Apart from that, who could resist seeing that AMAZING view of the Sutton Harbor every day while walking for class at the Mast House? It felt like a dream! A beautiful city, vibrant and happy is what a student needs to feel comfortable and build a new life.
I don’t regret my choice to come to Plymouth for that unique experience that is a masters degree. I couldn’t have found a better match for me. Ι want to end this blog post with the photo that I will keep as my best memory of my times here in Plymouth. Moments that we will never forget, here in Britain’s Ocean City, Plymouth.
